Legend: Numbers represent means or frequencies. Numbers in brackets indicate standard deviation of the mean. N = sample size, KVIQ-G 10 or 20 = Kinaesthetic and Visual Imagery Questionnaire German version – short (10 items each body side) or long (20 items each body side) version, Imaprax-G = Imaprax German version, vis = visual subscale, kin = kinaesthetic subscale, N/A = not applicable, * = Data from 1 patient is missing.
